Paramount And CBS Sue The Makers Of The Crowdfunded Star Trek Film Axanar


I suppose you can file this one under 'How Did It Not Happen Sooner?', but Paramount Pictures and CBS are suing the production team behind the Star Trek fan-film, Axanar. For those of you not up to snuff, a group filmmakers created a pretty awesome little short film, Prelude to Axanar, in hopes that they could generate some revenue to do a feature film following Garth of Izar, the Starfleet captain who charted more planets that anyone else and was idolized by Kirk. They were successful in raising over $1 million through both Kickstarter and Indiegogo. Production was set to begin next month and now Paramount and CBS have stepped in citing copyright infringements.
